Nikolai Alexandrovich Bernstein (1896 - 1966) is regarded as one of the most prominent scientists in the 20th century physiology. A skillful research scientist and a deep thinker, he laid the foundations for the contemporary biomechanics of human movements and theory of movement control. His contributions to the fields of neurophysiology are still highly valued by the international scientific community. This publication attempts to maintain and progress Bernstein's heritage.
